Construction is moving forward at the Rehoboth Health Campus! Beebe recently announced that the street name was approved by the state. The street running from Warrington Road to the Specialty Surgical Hospital and then connecting to the existing campus buildings will be known as Healthy Way. The Specialty Surgical Hospital will be 19161 Healthy Way – a nod to Beebe’s founding in 1916!

Beebe Healthcare held a groundbreaking ceremony at the future home of its Specialty Surgical Hospital at the Rehoboth Health Campus on Wednesday, May 15. The $124 million, four-story, state-of-the-art surgery center will allow patients with scheduled surgeries to not compete for services with more acutely sick patients and emergency patients of a general acute-care hospital.

The ceremonial groundbreaking scoop by Beebe leaders.

It will be the home for the Center for Robotic Surgery, and future home of the Women’s Health Labor & Delivery floor, where expectant families can continue to deliver babies in a family-centered, dedicated environment. It is expected to open in 2022.

Shown during ceremonial groundbreaking scoop left to right are:

Dr. Wilson Choy, orthopaedic surgeon with Premier Bone & Joint Care; Dr. Katrin Arnolds, OB/GYN with Beebe Women’s Healthcare – Plantations; Terry and Vanessa Megee, Co-Chairs of the Beebe Medical Foundation’s “I Believe in Beebe” campaign; Dave Herbert, Chair, Beebe Board of Directors; Rick Schaffner, Interim CEO, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer; Mike and Kelli Meoli, Co-Chairs of the “I Believe in Beebe” campaign; Judy Aliquo, President and CEO, Beebe Medical Foundation; and Keith Goheen, Chaplain.
